    Current overload

    Make sure the appliance is unplugged, before looking inside, I may be teaching my grandmother to suck eggs, but better to be safe than sorry. Also, if you can give a sequence of events, that happened when the fault occured, that will help the troubleshooting. Pardon my complete ignorance, but...

My first thoughts would be to pull the motor out and check the windings resistance with a multi meter. Also, look for any burn marks around the motor, or see if any smoke escaped. Check the wiring...

    Sold Packet of multi tool blades

    I said "head is not detachable" :) As can be seen in the attached photos, the head opens up 2 - 3mm, using the lever, to allow the blades to be inserted. The caveat being that the blade connection must be slotted, rather than solid. The tool came with no spanner, although the head appears to...

    Motor Flange For a Bench Sander

    The motor is 0.37KW, 4 pole, 1400 RPM. I had a choice of this model. or a 2 pole (2800 RPM). Would 1400 RPM be too fast for this application, I admit that I'm quite new to all this. Regards, Dan

    Free 3D CAD software for hobbyist woodworkers

    Hello, I have used Fusion 360, Sketchup and the open-source FreeCad. I found Fusion and Sketchup easy to use, but was disappointed when Fusion introduced their 10 file limit for personal use and still trying to save up for the 240 Euros / year for Sketchup (keep spending the money on new...

    Hello, I'm looking to make a bench sander. I have an electric motor with a 14mm shaft. I just need to find a decent sized flange plate to fit it, so I can attach my sanding disk. I bought a flange plate online, but it so small, I have visions of being decapitated by the sanding disc when I...

    Riving Knife (Aluminium or Steel)

    Thanks everyone for your replies. I don’t really want restart any push block wars here, that has probably caused heated debates many times in the past :). I think that neophyte’s answer might be right answer for me, at least in getting the right thickness and material. Cheers, Dan

    Riving Knife (Aluminium or Steel)

    Thanks Tom, I couldn’t find any listing on caulfields that showed “gauge plate”. Plenty of gauges & plates, but no joy. The bay has some, which might be suitable. Cheers, Dan
